Christina Re's China Doll...

This is a classic example of the wonderfully eclectic, vintage style I'm leaning towards this year.
Christina Re is a super talented stationary designer from melbourne Australia. I actually used some of her stunning papers to make my 30th birthday invitations a few years back.


Her gorgeous home is featured in this months Australian country home ideas magazine and was also featured in one of my favourite books - Madison Living.


Just as the magazine states, I LOVE her harmonious fusion of oriental and european vintage and contemporary pieces.

Mixing the old with the new has never looked so chic.




Bold patterns, contrasting colours yet everything looks simplistic and uncluttered.




(please click the images for a much larger view)







Christina states her home is a work in progress and will constantly evolve the more she travels - words to live by :)



Of course the pink tufted armchair is my favourite piece and this particular image with the red birdcage and black side table is an absolute winner!


(please excuse my dodgy scanning hehe)

^^ LOVE IT!


The gorgeous woman herself :)
love her dress!



This home is such an inspiration to me, I simply can't get enough of it.

I still can't get enough vintage style.....part 1 the bedroom...















I forever struggle with trying to define my own personal style. I try to follow the rules with one but then add something completely different to the look. I guess you could say I'm more of an eclectic kind of gal, but one element will forever remain in my interiors and thats my love of all things vintage.
I gave myself a break from flea market shopping these holidays as my home is simply busting at the seams, but I feel the pulling sensation to get back out there and start rummaging again so I know I will cave very soon lol.
I have however decided to de-clutter alot of my "pretty things" and create something a little more industrial. One of my favourite books in my collection is called Found Style by David and Amy Bulter. If you have a passion for all things vintage and recycled but without too much of the the feminine aspect then this book is for you!
Don't get me wrong I'm still a girly girl and regularly read my Austen novels but I just think I'm going to minimalise my "granny items" and go for a more boho feminine chic look this year.
Does this happen to you? Each year do your tastes change and you feel like you want to rip it all out and start fresh? God help me this could become a costly obsession LOL ;)

Whether it spells class and taste I’m not quite sure, but it’s certainly dazzling.
